Dwayne Dennis Scott was born on August 22, 1955 to Ernest J. and Elsie (Holoubek) Scott in Mitchell, SD. He graduated from Kimball High School in 1973 and began what would be a 42 year career in the grocery business. He had worked in Kimball at the grocery store and as a meat cutter for Lee Engel and Bob Folan and was most recently employed by Art and Martha Winsky at A & M Market until his retirement. On October 11, 1986 Dwayne was united in marriage to Edna "Jeanne" McKnight at St. Margaret's Catholic Church in Kimball where he was a member.
Dwayne was a past member of the Kimball Volunteer Fire Department and a former member of the Elks Lodge of Chamberlain, SD and the Knights of Columbus. He enjoyed woodworking, fishing, pheasant hunting and going out for a drive. He was an avid sports fan - following the Minnesota Twins and Vikings and attending sporting events for his boys, nieces and nephews. Dwayne was known for his big heart and the 4th of July won't be the same without his famous ribs.
